Former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre has commented on the WWE deciding to let Jeff Hardy go after he was sent home following an incident at a live event.

PWInsider first reported that Hardy was not at the live event held in Corpus Christi, Texas on Sunday, 5th of December saying that the SmackDown star had been sent home.

On the Saturday night event in Edinburg, Texas, Jeff Hardy headlined teaming with King Woods and Drew McIntyre to take on The Bloodline in a six-man tag team match. In that match, Hardy was said to have taken the lion’s share of the punishment from Roman Reigns and The Usos but once he tagged his partners in, Hardy left through the crowd and did not re-emerge after the bout.

Things then took a drastic twist when news emerged that Jeff Hardy had subsequently been released by WWE with reports suggesting that the company took action after Hardy refused to attend rehab.
One man that was part of Hardy’s final fateful match in WWE was Drew McIntyre. McIntyre was recently asked about Hardy while speaking to Steven Muehlhausen of DAZN, and said that some things have been blown out of proportion:
“For one, as usual, the internet can take something and blow out of proportion. But all I’ll say on the matter is I just want what’s best for Jeff and for him to be healthy. As long as he’s good, as long as he’s healthy, as long as he’s happy with his family, then Drew McIntyre is happy.”
